    The Collection

    2021 marks the 200th anniversary of Napoléon death on Saint Helena island and on this occasion, Monnaie de Paris celebrate the legacy of this period of history with an original and innovative coin collection.

    In this bicentenary year of Napoleon I’s passing away, we wanted to highlight one of the graphic icons of the Napoleonic era: the bicorn. We used it in several forms and made it a real "communication" vector. Indeed, on several products, it is a real mise en abyme where the bicorn is the object that carries the allegories and symbols of the Napoleonic heritage, whether civil or military!

    • THE MEDAL MINTER

      The medal minter transforms a blank into a medal, alternating between striking to bring out the relief and annealing to return the metal to a more malleable state. The blank is struck as many times as necessary, depending on the diameter, depth and detail of the engraving. Finally, surface treatments are applied to enhance the finished piece

    • THE ENGRAVER

      Trained at the best schools, they have the years of experience behind them necessary to master all aspects of the craft. Using industrial oil-based modelling clay and working from a design executed freehand or with CAD software, they skilfully fashion a low relief model in order to enhance the engraving and the way it catches the light. They work alternately with concave and convex plaster moulds until satisfied they have achieved the best 3D rendering of the design.
